Poll: Most Americans want to keep Obamacare in some form

In the wake of the Supreme Court's health-care decision, what do Americans think should happen next? Gallup posed the question last week and found that the majority of Americans don't think that full repeal of the law is the answer: 38 percent either want to keep the law in place as it is or expand the government's role, while 21 percent want to repeal parts, but not all, of the Affordable Care Act.

Gallup notes, however, that health care isn't likely to sway most people's votes one way or another come November: only 21 percent of voters (and 18 percent of independents) say the candidate must share their views on health care to receive their support.
